We visited 4th day into our family holiday, and can only say we wish we'd have visited sooner! Food, service, and staff were brilliant, they met our every need and will most certainly be back!! A fab set of staff! Charming, and humouress a great bunch of lads. A must visit when in Paignton.

We haven't eaten here, but have had many a fantastic evening here on visits to Paignton. There is a good selection of drinks available and the entertainment is always really good, especially the live music and discos.

Popular venue to eat and drink for both couples and families. Staff were cheerful, helpful & had a sense of humour ! Staff made my children feel welcome and certainly didn't ignore them. We were soon seated and didn't wait long for our food to arrive. Although a little more expensive than other local bar food it's definitely worth it... More

Takes ages to get served. Fried eggs on the ham and eggs inedible. Poor value for money. Sausage on children's sausage and chips very gristly. Avoid.
